  1. @optimus1509 Rather than just bump the thread every few days, share what you have so far for the script filter, as this will be a better starting point for someone to point you in the right direction. As there may not be many CCC users on the forum, share as much information as you can. For example, what's the output of the command "ccc -p" in Terminal, etc... The more information you provide, and the more legwork you do towards getting the CCC part of your workflow working, the easier it'll be for others to help you out Cheers, Vero
  2. @EvenStevens Welcome to the forum For us to be able to help you, you'll need to provide more details: - Which version of macOS are you using? - Which version of Alfred? - Is this a new issue on an existing version of macOS or an issue that started when you upgraded to a new OS? In short, start by ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1 (at the time of writing this) as my guess is you're using an older version of Alfred on macOS Catalina. Apple have moved the location of built-in apps in Catalina, which older versions of Alfred won't be aware of. C
  3. @jopemachine The response I got from Evernote is that it's one of the features they're still considering. While I'm not holding much hope, the more people make their interest known to Evernote (rather than just here in our forum), the more likely they'll give it some sort of priority. If AppleScript no longer works, it may be possible for a new Evernote workflow to be created using the API instead of AppleScript... The Evernote 7 legacy version can still be downloaded here in the meantime: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314 Cheers
  4. @JonH707 Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. This will help you establish why you're not finding certain files. Cheers, Vero
  5. The immediate solution is to create a few keyword objects to connect into your workflow. Duplicate your main keyword object then change the keyword, and connect it to the same workflow Cheers, Vero
  6. @Michal Bryxí Are Google Spreadsheets real files or do they just take you to the Google Sheets in your browser? If you can choose a real file (such as the example of a text file as @Pearcen used) and you drag it to your Desktop, wait a moment, then drag that to the File Troubleshooting tool, what metadata do you see? And what happens if you try to do the same with your .gsheet file? I think in your case, it could be a combo of 1. GDFS not allowing Spotlight to index files, and 2. .gsheet potentially not being a file at all. A little more investigating as suggested abov
  7. @Pearcen Since the post above, we've added a File Search Troubleshooting tool to Alfred. Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. I would recommend trying moving a file off GDFS and to your Desktop for a moment to establish whether it's found. If it is found when it's anywhere but on GDFS,
  8. Indeed, the fact that they specifically single out AppleScript as one of the features they're conscious users will be looking for gives me at least some hope. I've contacted Evernote (through standard channels, we don't have any special contacts there), so for those who love this workflow and would like to continue using it with future iterations of Evernote, make yourself heard too
  9. @Gregory Jones We found out a few hours ago that Evernote is changing, and I'll be attempting to get in touch with them to find out more, so please hold your horses. Cheers, Vero
  10. @finn-matti @Gregory Jones @ifihlshfhsfgje I'm truly sorry to hear that they've switched to Electron for future development. I'm not sure how receptive they are to feedback and feature suggestions, but if there's no support for working with external input at this stage (via AppleScript or otherwise), I would encourage you to make your voices heard either in their forums or by email. Thanks for bringing this up, and fingers crossed they listen to their community.
  11. @Gregory Jones I use this workflow pretty much daily, and I've checked for updates and it still works on the latest version of Evernote (7.14) on Catalina. Could you please ensure that you're using Evernote from Evernote.com (not the Mac App Store version) and that you're using the Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4, from the very top of the first post in this thread? If you're still having issues, please pop up the debugger and give more details as to what error messages you're seeing? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/debugger/ Let m
  12. @JolinM You could just do "If query is equal to [blank], take the first path, else (when there is a query) do the "else" action". Sounds like it should do what you want? Or I may have misunderstood your question, in which case, please provide more details Cheers, Vero
  13. @nikivi Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you are expecting to see in your File Filter. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if their file type matches what you've included in your File Filter. Cheers, Vero
  14. @Paul Harrison There are significantly more efficient ways to search for files than turning on that file type. Could you provide the File Troubleshooting output so that we can help you further?
  15. @Paul Harrison Are the files appearing in Spotlight's results? If you open System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud, is Optimised Storage on or off? In order for iCloud to store the actual files on your Mac (rather than storing them in the cloud and requesting them only when needed), Optimised Storage should be off. Cheers, Vero
  16. @P. Colin Manikoth As deanishe explains, the second snippet could never be typed as the first one would expand. If what you want is to type the full snippet keyword and for Alfred to only expand when you type a space afterwards, you can either add the space to your keyword itself (e.g. ":ux " noting the space after the x) or add it as a suffix for the entire collection. In that case, your second snippet would become possible. Cheers, Vero
  17. @Mal Apropos The Option + Command + C hotkey is the default Clipboard History viewer hotkey. You can go to Alfred's preferences > Features > Clipboard and change the Viewer hotkey to something that suits you better Snippets are a brilliant way to avoid repeating typing the same things, whether it's a whole paragraph of text, an email signature or a URL you frequently need. You'll find the full page on Snippets, including some examples, on this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/ As for the Templates, these are in
  18. @M4L @deanishe After some investigating a few days ago, Andrew was able to work out what's happening. It seems to be specifically related to the column view in Finder. If you change the default Finder view to items or list, then it works as expected. The workaround is to change the Finder view, or to use "Open File" instead of "Reveal in Finder", as this will open the folder in Finder, but also select it. This is clearly a bug in Catalina, and we tried various workarounds to this issue using Apple's APIs to no avail. You get the same behaviour if you cmd+re
  19. @sighound Always check your spam/filtered folders (e.g. Gmail's Promotions tab) in case it was filtered by your email service. If you're still unable to locate it, hit reply on your receipt email and let us know. We'll then be able to reissue it for you Cheers, Vero
  20. @cdispoto These results indicate that there's a deeper indexing issue on your Mac, outside of Alfred. The first step is to restart your Mac and see whether the message has changed. If it remains the same and your index doesn't appear to rebuild, take a look at these two threads, which refer to the same error message you're seeing. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/254039/spotlight-borked-after-macos-sierra-update https://www.reddit.com/r/applehelp/comments/3wwjwx/spotlight_search_doesnt_search_applications_after/ Do you have any idea wh
  21. @MJS-UK Welcome to the forum As we've discussed earlier in this thread, Apple have a habit of moving the goalposts without warning. Email search worked in every version up to Mojave, where the files were indexed as part of the macOS metadata index. In Catalina, the files are still there but, without notice, Apple intentionally chose to no longer return the email files in the indexed metadata. This may be a temporary or permanent change; we're not privy to this information from Apple, so we do our best to make as much of your Mac's data available, but this
  22. @amstrong32 The best way to do this is by creating a small workflow with a file nickname, as per the "App nickname" example in this post: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-get-the-results-you-want-in-alfred-every-time/ You can even use Spotlight's Privacy feature to stop Slack from appearing in your search results if you prefer. Just make sure you type "reload" into Alfred when you've dragged the app to Spotlight Privacy. Cheers, Vero
  23. @cdispoto Which version of Alfred are you using? Cheers, Vero
  24. @chris When you first picked a spot in Dropbox, did it say "Alfred will use these existing preferences" or "Alfred's preferences will be copied to this folder"? We try to make the difference between using a pre-existing set of preferences that was already present, and copying your existing preferences to the new location abundantly clear in this process, so that if you select an existing set of preferences, it doesn't get overwritten. Glad you're all sorted though. Cheers, Vero
  25. @trytwowheels Take a look at the "Adding keywords as nicknames" section of this blog post. A really quick little workflow is the easiest way to do this https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-get-the-results-you-want-in-alfred-every-time/ This is the most reliable way to give other names to your apps, and doesn't rely on macOS features like tags and comments that aren't always reliable. Cheers, Vero
